ISAIAH EMRYS ST. JOHN
With everything Isaiah had gone through in his life he is surprisingly a very easy-going go with the flow kind of guy. All he wants to do is have fun with people in a more party setting. Isaiah was always the one at the parties to go up and start talking to people. The more friends the merrier. Life felt so short and borderline meaningless that Isaiah decided to not take life too seriously. 'May as well enjoy every moment you can get out of it,' was his catchphrase. One of his major shortcomings is that he has absolutely no filter which has gotten him in trouble before. Anything that pops into his head almost instantly is said out loud. Many people appreciated his honesty, but not everyone liked being told the truth. Isaiah has no time for people's BS and just avoids anyone that tends to carry a lot of that around with them.
Responsibility is something Isaiah tries to avoid to the best of his ability. Being lazy sounds a lot more enjoyable to him so he does his best to be lazy. No matter what he'll do his part when it comes to a task. Having no choice except to take care of younger siblings forced him to deal with it. If you want to get him fired up the best way to do that is to make something into a competition. Something even as silly as, "I bet I can wash dishes faster than you." With only a little effort of egging him on you can get him to accept your challenge. If you beat him Isaiah is not a sore loser, though. If someone does something better than him to win he accepts it. More than likely he will now ask you one thousand questions on how you managed to win so he can take what he needs to learn and do better.
Born into an odd home life, Isaiah was the second born out of nine siblings. Everything always felt a bit chaotic due to living with eight siblings, two parents, and an Aunt he never liked. Without a choice he was forced to live with that Aunt due to money situations. Even as an infant he always got slightly spooked when near his Aunt Helena. Never had his Aunt ever done him wrong personally, but there just felt like something was off so he tried his best to keep his distance. One thing he did appreciate was the huge mansion he lived in. There was always so much to explore and sometimes his parents had to chase him around since he just kept wandering off doing his own thing. It got to the point where they just let him be since nothing they did stopped him.
Even though he was not close to his Aunt in any way, Isaiah felt extremely close to his parents. Both his parents were apart of his life equally and even managed to share their time fairly with the rest of his siblings except his older sister. Many of times he had gotten in a lot of trouble by his Aunt over little things. Everything he did seemed wrong around her so as a child he had a tendency to run and cry to his parents a lot. Even though they were not in the position to argue with his Aunt they still would console him when needed.
One thing Isaiah did love was going to school. One of the best ways to get out of the house, be around other people besides his family, and let out a lot of energy. Of course, he loved his family with all his heart. Just when you're stuck in a place with so many family members it felt nice to be away from them even for a little bit. Even though a lot of his siblings were in the same school as him Isaiah still appreciated the fact that none of them were in sight when it came to being in the classroom. Early on he found a passion for Soccer and even joined the Soccer Team after school. Playing Soccer became very therapeutic for him and it was the one thing he could claim as his own.
For a good while it felt like his older sister did not even exist. Slowly Isaiah was able to build some kind of bond with his older sister. For some odd reason it felt difficult to bond with his siblings. Always being surrounded by them all he wanted to do was escape. Soccer became his main activity to do which allowed him to drift off into his own world. Most of his time he was either at school, some kind of soccer practice, a soccer game, or just practicing outside by himself. All he wanted to do was have fun and not focus on anything else. Sometimes he would play soccer with his family, but due to how competitive he would be that they did not enjoy playing with him.
Soon it was revealed that he came from a family of Shifters. Most of his siblings could shift, but he was one of the few that could not. Well, it was mostly the fact that he did not even really try or want to. It was just easier for him to do his own thing and let them go flying off together. Despite his "lone wolf" status Isaiah did take after his older sister a bit and right at the same time. Around 15 he started going to parties and hanging out with people much older than him. For the most part he always looked a lot older than he really was. Isaiah and his friends would get drunk quite a bit. One thing he did notice that was quite off was what he and his teammates found attractive. All the time they would mention how hot some chick was and he would nod and agree with them. In many ways he would find the girls his friends picked out as appealing, but he was more distracted by how hot other boys were.
At 16 it felt as though his whole world had been turned upside down and everything just went so fast. Shifter Hunts had started and he came from a family of Shifters. A part of him resented them for it since all he wanted to do was live a normal life, be a professional soccer player, and meet a cute boy. Now, they were planning on how to escape. The plan seemed simple. They would burn the house down, escape somewhere far, and make it seem like a mob burned down the place killing all of them. That was not how things turned out at all. During the night Isaiah was woken up by his Aunt while the house had already caught on fire. Their Aunt Helena said that their parents would follow along later to join them as they made their journey to safety. Something in his gut told him that something was wrong, but everything was happening all at once that Isaiah could only focus on making it to safety and trying to take care of his younger siblings.
When morning arrived it appeared that his parents had no come back yet. The siblings that could shift went to investigate and came back with no sign of them. Isaiah initiated the interrogation toward the Aunt about the whereabouts of their parents. Without wanting to hear the answer it was too late to have any denial. Hearing that his parents died in the fire shook him to the core of his being. Even though Isaiah wanted to break down it was not the time to do so. The family traveled mostly on foot, occasionally going into the smaller towns they came across to get food. They eventually made it to the safe house, nestled high up in the mountains. An old ski lodge that had been bought out by one of Helena's UNIT Pro-Shifter contacts.
Without Soccer to comfort Isaiah he began to get a bit closer to his siblings. There was no escaping the truth of everything that had happened so he needed to find something to distract him. After a year of living in the Ski Lodge his Aunt Helena began to come down with some kind of illness. Did not seem long after his Aunt got pneumonia that she had passed. In the back of his head Isaiah was glad she was gone. From the beginning he did not like her so he did not feel any grief for her. Since his Aunt passed away his older sister had taken charge of being "the Mom." This is when Isaiah finally started actually letting her inside his heart. Isaiah appreciated everything Honora did for them and tried his best to help out when possible. There were even a few times he had almost called his older sister 'Mom.' Just to be close to Honora, he even did his best to help take care of his Nephew.
The next six months were actually enjoyable for him. Everything seemed to be going so peacefully. His younger sister, Meade, had been caught shoplifting, but managed to escape, shift, and fly to safety. She didn't think she had been tracked, but it wasn't but a week later that their safe haven was discovered. When his older sister told him and his non-shifter siblings to go through the tunnels to escape through the mountain side Isaiah begged for her and the rest of them to come along. When Honora made up her mind she made up her mind. With little time he led his younger non-shifter siblings to safety to escape.
After escaping Isaiah was not quite sure what to do next. Now, he was forced into taking care of three of his younger siblings and his Nephew. They were spotted together wandering around in a new town they never been to. Next thing he knew he was put into an Orphanage since there was no way someone as young as him without a job could do anything. Not too long later of being put in the Orphanage he was kicked out right on his 18th Birthday. An old woman took him in a few days later when she found him shivering in an alley way. Their deal was that if he was to do all the chores in the house and tried to find a job that he could stay. The old woman was named Rose, but the people in the Town called her G-Ma Rose.
In a short amount of time Isaiah had found a job, made friends, and even had a chance to play Soccer again. Even though he hated responsibility Isaiah owed so much to G-Ma Rose that he did everything to make her proud. A few days after his 20th Birthday that G-Ma Rose passed on. In her will G-Ma left him everything she had. The house, her car, and over 500,000 dollars. After dealing with so much grief of losing everyone he loved he started hitting up more parties to cheer himself up. His attendance to work became smaller and smaller and smaller to the point that he got fired. With the amount of cash he inherited that did not phase him in the moment. The money started flying out of his pockets when he found pain killers to chill him out. For almost an entire year his life just came crashing down as his addiction progressed. When he almost died due to his addiction he came to the realization that he had a real problem. A couple of months before his 21st birthday he got himself checked into rehab. They had started doing Shifter checks for new patients. Despite the fact that he came from a Shifter family he was not worried since he never shifted like his other siblings. To his surprise Isaiah tested positive for being a Shifter.
They carted him off to the Compound where he got tested on while going through withdrawals. It was fascinating to see him going through the withdrawals because he actually started shifting for the first time when the pain became intense. After he passed through all that they got bored and dumped him into the Dome. Now, Isaiah is a brand new Carna.
